QUICK REVIEW: This creamy balm not only delivers reliable moisture to lips – but a healthy dose of color. The only thing missing is the SPF.
the REVIEW (02/19/2012): If this were a fairy tale, Revlon Lip Butter ($7.49, drugstore.com) is just right. Neither too thick, too sticky, too sheer or too anything, it delivers a healthy semi-sheer dose of color and a mighty helping of lip quenching moisture.
Packed with Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter, Coconut Oil and Peptides, this creamy balm is one of the few balms that keeps my lips from drying out, flaking or getting “gummy”. Unlike other Revlon lip products, Lip Butter has very little scent. In comparison to other tinted balms, it also has a lot more pigment, which gives it a slightly more sophisticated finish. There is also just the right amount of shine which imparts a healthy gloss to the lips.
Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter is easily one of my current favorites and has been flying off the shelves. I fully intend on purchasing several of these and at $7.49 a pop, will do so without an ounce of guilt.
♥ Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Honeysuckle ($7, drugstores). 100% natural option that is similar in texture but with a more neutral, sheer color.
♦ YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm Crystal Color in 07 Sweet Fig ($30, sephora.com). A luxury offering with higher shine content, sweeter scent and beauty editor appeal.
How does Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter compare to L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Balm? Lip Butter is more pigmented, Le Balm has SPF 15 and a stronger scent.
